Atypical hemangioma on spine MRI. Why spine MRI can't determine cancer? Full-body scan recommended but how about whole-body MRI to avoid radiation?
Not performed.: Contrary to what you might have been told, a "whole body MRI" is almost NEVER performed - it's too expensive, & the technology doesn't work to make it easier. A PET or PET/CT scan is a better test for detecting cancer, but unless you have SYMPTOMS indicating cancer, the chance of picking something up is remote. It wastes your time, worry, & money. Hemangiomas are common. TTYD or use HealthTap Prim ...Read more

Mri showed grade 1 MCI sprain/strain..had arthroscopic surgery on left knee, found 2 tears on my medial and lateral menisci. ?
And the question is?: Though there's a question mark in the sentence, I don't know what you're asking. So far you've said that you've got 2 tears in the medial & lateral menisci of your left knee. Are you wondering WHY MRI only showed a sprain/strain & not the tears which arthroscopic surgery claimed existed? If so, the answer is MRI of the knee is not as sensitive to "seeing" tears as direct visualization. ...Read more
